they are to vote. high turnout favors democrats. low turnout favors republicans. this is not rocket science. to the extent that voting in florida this year is a debacle, it is a man-made debacle. it is a debacle by design. in some towns the ballot this year in florida is ten pages long. and filling it out takes longer, and with fewer days to vote, well, yeah, magic, you get really long lines. but that's the way it goes in florida now. leading up to the election, florida republicans cut the time for early voting in half. so now floridians stand in long lines. they pass new restriction on registering voters so thousands fewer new voters signed up. and governor scott has continued trying to purge the voter rolls in florida, challenging voter registrations in to the final weeks before the vote. in south florida and palm beach county 30,000 absentee ballots were printed wrong. clerks have been copying what the voters marked on to new ballots that can fit into the tabulating machines. dozens more voters asked for absentee ballots and still haven't gotten them, days much about the election. becaus

isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. ♪ sxz all right. my story of the week. what if ohio were the bronx. ohio likely voters taken from tuesday through thursday show president obama with a slight lead over romney. the reason pollsters are obsessively polling ohio and political reporters flooded the state and barack obama and romney have been living there is because it's most likely the state to win the election. if romney wins florida, virginia and colorado, it's still difficult for him to get to the needed 270 electoral votes without winning ohio. there's one lone point of comfort as the polls tightened to a tie or a slight lead for romney. in ohio, polls reliablely show romney two to five points behind the president. political observers spent a fair amount of time why barack obama is outperforming his national numbers in ohio, among white men. the ohio economy is outperforming the national economy. ohio has a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, it's seen a faster rate of improvement. a big reason for that is, of course, the auto re
